Literacy Leadership and the Administrator: Relationship as Moral Agency from Within
Parker, Darlene Ciuffetelli
International Electronic Journal for Leadership in Learning, v12 n9 2008
This paper is a personal narrative of the author's lived experiences and exploration of the importance of relationship as moral agency from within. She first reports on research findings arising from her longitudinal PhD dissertation entitled "Literacy narratives: Writing and relating letters and stories of teacher knowledge, identity and development" (Ciuffetelli Parker, 2004). Next, she explores how she applied her findings to literacy leadership in an inner city school, St. Geoffrey, while she was an administrator there. Then, she cross examines her experiences as literacy leader and administrator to the new "Ethical Standards for the Teaching Profession of Ontario" (2006) with information taken from her speaking engagement to current administrators in the field. She shows this personal narrative as an authentic "case" of moral leadership which is grounded in relationship. The results of her work are presented.
